Date/Time Location Speaker

You will learn to dispatch chickens by stunning and bleeding, (watching only is an option) how to wet-pluck a chicken so as to avoid bruising and how to truss and dress them hygienically and safely ready for sale or the table.

This is a hands on course, not for the faint-hearted.
